3:09 am
and this is what rob goldman, the head of ads for facebook says. the majority of the russian ad spend happened after the election. we shared that fact but a few outlets have covered it because it doesn't align with the main media narrative of trump and the election. very telling. he continues most of the russian meddle egg involves their affect. i have seen all of the russian ads. can i say very definitively that swaying the election was not the main goal. president trump retweeting these tweets saying hard to ignore what facebook's own ad guy is saying. >> except he is getting attacked. viciously by the way. for saying that. but, yeah. absolutely. if most of the ads were after the election. how the heck can you say that it was trying to sway the election? todd: there is a common theme that we are going to try to communicate over the course of the next four hours. it is the russians were trying to attack democracy.
3:10 am
that needs to be your number one take away today. not that he was trying -- that russians were trying to put trump in the white house. it is clear that they were trying to attack democracy. and, folks, they still are. that's what the president is trying to point out, yet, the mainstream media tips to attack him andk off the process. this is an attack on democracy that we need to be village lengths about. the president realizes that i don't understand why the mainstream media doesn't. griff: we should apologize if we started your morning with. email us at friends@foxnews.com. and let us know what you think of it. rachel: we begin with a fox news alert. 66 people are dead after an iranian commercial plane crashed into a mountain overnight. airlines making announcement just a short time ago, flight 3704 was on its way to yasuj to tehran. bad weather was reported in the area. and more breaking news.

3:14 am
3:15 am
♪ todd: welcom griff: welcome back. nancy pelosi and the democrats seem confident they will retake congress in 2018. >> i think every poll now is double digit that people would vote for democrat over republican as, shall we say, inclined to support democrats. griff: not so fast, nancy. a recent 2018 generic ballot
3:16 am
has voters preferring the g.o.p. over democrats 39% to 8%. what does this mean for 2018? here to break it down is john mclaughlin, john, tell me, the dems thought they had the advantage, now this poll changes things. >> the president's leadership. what's going on is 40% of the americans think the country is headed in the right direction. under obama we hit that number in the last term. the president number's going up his approval numbers in the 040s. americans think the economy is going to get better 56-32. that's thanks to president trump. the bad part that's holding us down is in our latest poll in february, we had mclaughlin online.com the g.o.p. approval ratings only 37%. it's 58 disapprove. we got to get congress to vote. what's happening now is the democrats are being exposed. they complained about the president's state of the union, which, if you watched it, out of the 46 million people that watched it, 75% approved. but you had democrats sitting on their hands,
3:17 am
couldn't even clap for policemen, marines. they basically walked out on the president. and they were exposed. they were exposed in the government shutdown. now we have got to get republican leadership in the house and senate to make them votes on things like work fair. even on term limits. make them vote on the things that the president is proposing. griff: you say that president trump has really been the factor, it's changed the advantage over to the republicans. let me ask you, mitch mcconnell, leader of the senate, saying that he expects the republicans to lose seats, the "new york times" headline wants you to believe that they could even lose the senate. >> we shouldn't, because i tell you what, and senator mcconnell when he ran senate campaign was very good at this. when we gained seats. i will tell you what, we only have 8 seats up out of the 34. the democrats are on the line and 10 of the democrats are running in seats in the senate. that donald trump carried those states. four of those states were carried double digits. so we ought to be able to
3:18 am
gain seats like north dakota. missouri, indiana, west virginia. we're going to put the democrats. we have got to put them on defense. we have got to go after them and make them vote. senator mcconnell has to make those senators vote on popular issues so the voters can see what their choice is in november. we should not lose seats in the senate. the house will be tougher to hold, but we should be able to hold the house, too. griff: john, let's talk very quickly because we are almost out of time. independents in the latest poll 25% g.o.p. 26 democrat. 49% undecided. what do you make of the independents where they are right now. and is pelosi a factor that counts against the democrats in the independent column? >> well, there is two things. one is the mid terms we get a lower turnout. you only get between 80 and 90 people come out. democrats seem more fired up. we have to get the trump voters. when i was part of the trump campaign, president trump -- we got 9 million more voters in 2016 than 2012. he was the reason he brought them out. we have to get the trump
3:19 am
voters back out. the second thing is the independents, we have got to turn them around. why it's so important senator mcconnell and leader ryan get the democrats to vote on things that independents agree with you us on. griff: you were a polster for president trump. where is he? >> where is he? griff: where is he on this? >> he is pushing his agenda on infrastructure. he's pushing his agenda on immigration. those are majority popular things. the house and senate need to vote on it. griff: silent trump voters in 2016, going to see them in 2018? >> if they get a choice to see their votes matter to get those passed they will be out. griff: thank you for your time. >> thanks, griff. griff: are you ready for the moment when an attack happens, a former mma fighter and green beret has a message for america. and a protest against white nationalists on campus somehow turns into a rally against cops. one student from that school is here next.

[chanting] hey cops, hey fascists get the [bleep] off our campus ♪ hey cops, hey fascists get the [bleep] off our campus griff: why did they turn so quickly on those people there. correspondent for campus reform.org and student at the university of tennessee. what happened that really dissolved intdid i devolved ints quickly. >> thank you for having me. i do not agree with what this organization stands for. i do not agree with what
3:25 am
matthew had to say. our chancellor at the university of tennessee in knoxville did an excellent job. she understood this group had a right to speak on a public university. however she took the measures necessary to bring in law enforcement officers to protect students as well as everyone on campus. griff: so election election ilexie, let me backup. he has been sympathetic to the views of adolf hitler and this group protesting obviously does not want that on their campus. what isn't clear is while the group was chanting and i watched all the video against an early part of the evening against nazis and fascists, it eventually turned into just a rally against cops who play no part in the story except for the fact that they are there to protect the group's first amendment rights. >> yes. so over at campus reform at
3:26 am
leadership institute's campus reform, we have to deal with these cases a lot. we have to deal with left leaning students who don't understand why cops are on campus. cops are on campus to protect students because, unfortunately, we use phrases like white supremacy and neo nazi to describe people like this presidency who aren't white supremacists and who aren't nazis so students. the phrase is being watered down. so whenever an what white supremacist or nazi comes on campus we have to have law enforcement officers to protect students because they don't know what a white supremacist is. rachel: such an excellent point, lexie we are throwing that word around. it is getting diluted. a lot of students don't know what that is. we saw protesters were saying those terrible things about our cops who are there to protect us. what are they -- were they a small minority or were there other campus students there that were supporting the
3:27 am
police officers while they were there protecting them? >> well, what you tend to see in a lot of media, what you tend to see on social media, on other news organizations are the students who are trying to protest this organization and who are trying to protest these cops now. so on campus, these are the stories that you are going to hear about mostly. you are going to hear about the students who talk about how cops -- these police officers are walking around on their campus in riot gear and appreciating students from stepping off the sidewalk. what they don't understand is wha law enforcement is doing that for their protection there are students upset that this organization was escorted into the building. but, in reality, that's for student protection. students are the top priority at that university. and, yes, this group is important because they are citizens and law enforcement is there to protect them as well. but students are getting upset that they had police officers on their campus in riot gear. in reality they needed that
3:28 am
to protect everyone involved. griff: great point. >> we will see the officers and how the officers are protecting the nazis on campus. todd: talk about undermining your message. lexie thank you so much. that was amazing insight this morning and have a great day. attorney general jeff sessions speaking out about recusing himself from the doj russia probe. does he think he should have? that's coming up. rachel: plus a florida teacher posts about gun violence is going viral after the school shooting. her message that every parent should hear coming up. and the nx hybrid with a class beating 31 mpg combined estimate. lease the 2018 nx 300 for $339 a month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. teddy's a pitmaster. when it comes to playing with fire, nobody does it better. he's also a volunteer firefighter.

3:33 am
the department of children and families actually investigated that video. they found cruz was actually receiving outpatient care from a mental hospital here in broward county and that hospital had deemed him stable enough at that time two years ago to not be an inpatient, to not be hospitalized there at that mental hospital. so we have that. also a local newspaper interviewed the family that took in this young man back in november after his mother died. the couple and their son took in nikolas cruz. they said that it was very clear he is depressed about the death of his mother. he was very lonely. he wanted a girlfriend and he had this arsenal of weapons when he moved into that home. this was a gun-owning family himself. they made him get a case and lock them up. his father thought he had the only key and as it turns out they did not. they have no clue why this young man did what he did. now, looking forward to the trial now, and how this is all going to be handled by the state and by prosecutors, the prosecutor
3:34 am
has hinted at the death penalty saying, quote, this certainly is the type of case that the death penalty was designed for. this was highly calculated and premeditated people of 17 people and the attempted murder of everyone in that school. our office will announce our formal position at the appropriate time. cruz has said he would plead guilty if the death penalty is off the table. so, we will see how that turns out. coming up here in about an hour or so, we are going to have a look at some of these kids, great kids here at this school are trying to get back to life and they did so yesterday on the football field. they lost their assistant coach who died a hero this week. we are going to talk to them and show you that story. it's something nice to see. a bit uplifting after such a terrible week. guys, we will send it back to you. griff: all right. thanks, rob. boy that community is going to have a tough time getting back. rachel: absolutely. todd: there is a facebook post from a former teacher of the year. rachel: going viral. todd: this is kelly guthrie
3:35 am
railly, until we as a country are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care in the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are trying to control horrible behavior at the school. not my kid, what did you do to cause my kid to react that way. lack of moral values and yes, i will say it violent video games that take away all sensitivity to any compassion for others' lives as well as reality tv that makes it commonplace for people to constantly scream up in others faces and not value any other person except theirselves we will have a gun problem in school. our kids don't understand the permanency of death anymore. parents, it's time to step up. be the parent that actually gives a crap. be the annoying mom that pries and knows what your kid is doing. stop being their friend. rachel: wow. no wonder this has gone viral. i think she has taken what
3:36 am
so many parents -- and some teachers see every day. i hear that all the time from teachers that, you know, they are doing the parenting at the school. she also talks about, you know, that your bedroom is not your bedroom when you are a teenager. it belongs to your parents. some of these cases we have heard of starting with the first one in columbine that these kids were, you know, creating these bombs and keeping these weapons in their room. and i always wondered how did they do that? i go into my kids' room all the time to make sure they did their bed or their closet is not a mess. how do you keep weapons? there is a lack of parenting going on. of course, in this case, this kid was an orphan, he was sending signs in my opinion. he was screaming for help at all these different cases. griff: absolutely. as a parent and a reporter, i don't shield my children from the news. and, you know, what she is getting at is th the dee dee th.

proposing a new bill cut unemployment person's benefits. kentucky became the first state to add work requirement for collecting medicaid benefits. griff and rachel, down to you. griff: thanks, todd. one democrat is partially blaming the obama administration for russian meddling in the 2016 election. >> i do think though that in fairness, some of the responsibility is also attributed to the obama administration for not establishing a more forceful deterrent. i think it depose back to the korean hack of sony in which there was a minimal response. i think that others around the world watched that and determined that cyber is a cost-free intervention. rachel: is this true or just another excuse as to why democrats lost the election? former democrat ohio congressman and current candidate for ohio governor dennis kucinich joins us now. welcome, congressman. >> good morning.
3:46 am
rachel: good morning. so a lot of people -- i know you are a democrat. a lot of republicans look at this and say hey, look, the democrats under obama didn't really seem to care about the russians until hillary lost. what do you say to that? >> well, i think it's wrong to blame president obama. he fully supported hillary clinton. and, let's face it, his legacy is at risk with president trump. but you have to remember it was 11 days before the election when the fbi director comey made an announcement that seemed to implicate hillary clinton in some activity that could be defined as criminal. that changed the outcome. that's why hillary clinton lost. the administration was monitoring russian activity. but you can't blame president obama. this is all about comey. if you take comey out of the equation, hillary clinton wins the electio. griff: let me push back on
3:47 am
that. allegations did not effect the outcome of the election but yet started in 2014, congressman. so, you know, when we hear the headlines all day long today that president trump isn't doing enough with sanctions on russia with leading on efforts to block what happened with facebook and elsewhere, doesn't it go back to president obama, not taking a tough enough stance? >> well, again, you are talking about the outcome of an election here there were polls that were taken that measurably changed after fbi director comey had his announcement in which he seemed to finger hillary clinton. and it brought everything back up again about the emails. that changed the outcome. griff: congressman, we are not talking about the outcome. we are talking about what the president is pointing to in tweets today the ad guy for facebook saying this is about causing chaos in our political system. democrats, republicans, otherwise. not the outcome. and so the proposition that
3:48 am
obama couldn't have done more with his not only fbi but cia, dni and elsewhere didn't do enough, didn't start that tough enough stand on russia when he was trying to do the re-set. >> well, i think you have to realize the obama administration was monitoring it. and now with the muriel the muer indictments that have come up recently, they are fingering russian involvement, at least russian nationals and we will see how the trial goes. but the whole thing about blaming president obama is filtering in to a narrative that somehow he didn't do enough to support hillary clinton. and the fact of the matter is, he put it all on the line for her. rachel: i'm not hearing that the problem is that he didn't support hillary clinton. i think you just pointed out he was monitoring the problem. i think what americans are asking if russia was such a big problem in this election and we know that it happened in 2014 under president obama, why didn't he actually do something about it versus just monitoring it?
3:49 am
>> well, again, let's sort this out. president trump had nothing to do with this outcome. it was about comey and president obama was on top of it and he didn't say anything. i think he is going to have account for that the fact of the matter is, in the end, the election was decided on the basis of what comey did, not on anything else. rachel: let's take a look at what jerry nadler, a democrat from new york said just yesterday on msnbc. >> this is a very serious attack against the united states by hostile foreign power and attack against our election process, our entire governing process. that we know that the attack is continuing. the president and the republicans in the house for that matter refuse, refuse to do anything about protecting us from the attack. imagine if fdr had denied that the japanese attacked us at pearl harbor and didn't react?
3:50 am
that's the equivalent. griff: congressman, more than 2,000 people died in pearl harbor, americans that is. what do you make of your former colleague's comments. >> i respect jerry nadler, i reject his analogy. i want to say it was about comey, the outcome of the election was tilted by fbi director comey. that's why hillary clinton lost. griff: all right, congressman. good luck in that race for governor out there. we look forward to following it and hearing more from you. >> thank you. rachel: thank you, congressman. griff: all right. presidents' day is tomorrow. according to joy reid, it will be a day without a real president. the new comment sparking outrage. that's coming up. earned you miles to get to the places you really want to go. with the united mileageplus explorer card, you'll get a free checked bag. two united club passes. priority boarding. and earn fifty thousand bonus miles after you spend

rachel: a presiden presidents' y without a real president. monday is presidents' day and second consecutive such holiday without an american president. by the way this is according to joy reid. this is not me saying. this. griff: this is joy reid. >> he sits in the oval office when is he not golfing. he lives in the white house with his family. is he not the president of the united states. trump is a hollow vessel has there has ever been in the
3:55 am
white house. his rule lacks even a shred of moral authority. happy presidents' day. todd: the mainstream media needs to start. this how did we start the show with how russia is attacking the democratic ideals of this country. this is playing right into the russian's hands. exactly what they want. rachel: couldn't agree more. the president isn't saying there is no russian involvement. he is just saying i didn't collude with them. griff: you know, in the larger context of things, we have as the president is pointing out the fbi struggling to get back on track with many problems. that subdenial. so comments like these with respect to ms. reid and her opinion doesn't help what is a very pressing problem in america. if you have a problem with president trump's immigration plan, with his tax reform, with something like that, then attack the policy but just an ad hominem attack against the guy. rachel: this is their strategy from the very beginning the resistance says we are not going to

normalize him and accept this presidency. that's why they ran with this whole russia ridiculous story line for over a year. joy may not think he is the president. go ask people in middle america who are doing a lot better economically than they ever did under the obama administration whether they like this president. we just did that story did you earlier was so good on explaining how the numbers bumped up when the republicans deliver on policies. the american people respond. that was led by president donald trump. todd: we have a big show coming up next three hours. vice president mike pence coming under fire for his faith. just the latest victim of what's being called christian shaming. how can it be stopped? we will discuss that next hour. plus corey lewandowski, john radcliff and sebastian gorka all coming up. ♪

4:03 am
exact connection because there is a lot of layers involved. but, the fact of the matter is, the fbi missed a lot of signs that could have saved 17 lives. rachel: right. leadership matters. you have the leadership of the fbi distracted, trying to, you know, go follow this trail of russia collusion which, by the way, the indictment now says no russia collusion. this is why the president is frustrated. we wasted a year on this. a lot of people are at home going why is the lead investigator at the fbi texting with his girlfriend about how to get an insurance policy to disrupt the election of a duly elected president when we have clear problems in this assistance of the fbi. we had a clear, credible tip to the fbi from somebody who knew nikolas cruz and it was not passed on and, boy, there were tragic, tragic reactions. if you are a parent, you andrandi are both parents.

how angry about that. griff: todd has a good point the president's uncanny ability to talk about what the americans care about. this tweet, basically point to an agency in crisis. rachel: yeah. griff: whether it's missing tips that could have saved lice or whether it is a political bias at the highest level of leadership within the organization, meddling in our election. if you will, if you look at the agent strzok and page. rachel: of course. griff griff todd covered that live during the week. at the end of the day a lot of americans trust in law enforcement in this country and the fbi and their ability to do their fundamental job of protecting us has been eroded. and the president is pointing to it's time to begin to get that back. rachel: he is also saying look, the russia collusion, what came out in the indictment, this stuff started back in 2014. there was a russian company that was sort of overseeing all this disinformation. back in 2014.
4:05 am
todd: let's get to this. the president tweets: funny how the fake news media doesn't want to say that the russian group was formed in 2014, like rachel said, long before my run for president. maybe they knew i was going to run even though i didn't. that is a huge point. let's go back to 2012, in fact. remember when mitt romney said, you know, russia is a major, major concern and president obama said the 1980s want their foreign policy back. that shows an underlying failure during the obama administration to take russian meddling, let's call it what it is, meddling seriously. consequences are being seen right there. rachel: when you see a new york headline like, this can you see. trump's silence leaves trump without a leader. i have to say that's so frustrating. just because you say you are not colluding with the russians doesn't mean you

4:07 am
and quite frankly, americans should be outraged by that. rachel: he said that by the way yesterday on our show. he has been getting attacked by the media, obviously, for this. but he makes such a great point. i don't think the russians that you saw the russian ads. they are pretty silly. they were not on one side or the other. their purse was really just to create discord and dissension and division in america and the people that have ran with that and have actually realized this for them because the amount of money they spent wasn't enough to do that was the democrats and their partners in the media. you saw just when we just covered right now with joy reid saying he is not our president. not wanting to normalize him. resisting. and that is what's causing the division and the russians have capitalized on that. todd: great point. to all this media of attacking trump. we are going to come back to a theme that we have so far. we will continue for the next three hours. stay in your lane, do your job. it is the president of the united states' job to focus

4:34 am
does the president have a point here? >> well, the president has a very important point. the point is that the previous administration, the obama administration under jim comey's lack of leadership at the fbi should have been doing something about this because if they were informed back in may of 2014 -- now, don't forget, donald trump came down that beautiful escalator in june of 2015, so, 13 months later, but what we now know, according to the indictment from rod rosenstein with a was after 13 months to donald trump even getting into the race, the russians were trying to do something to materially change the outcome of our election. where is the accountability from james comey and barack obama's administration that they should have been doing something about this? rachel: corey, i have another question for you. very early on, since the beginning of the muriel investigation. the democrats have been saying oh, donald trump is going to fire him. donald trump is going to interfere with this investigation. he is kind of held back, even though there were lots of democrats --
4:35 am
disproportionate number of democrats on muriel's team. now rosenstein comes out with these indictments and he says no collusion. no impact on the election. and the democrats and the media won't let donald trump feel vindicated, which i think he should from the results of this indictment i have to remember from the very beginning and i was there at the beginning of the campaign even before we officially launched the campaign, there was no collusion, there was no cooperation and coordination between us and any russians that we ever knew of. we didn't speak to any russians or anybody else for that matter. what this is a clear vinny devindication for the president and our team that said we didn't have anything to do with this. but the mainstream media doesn't want to give him the credit that he won fair and square. look, michael goodwin has a piece today in the "new york post" that talks about it. this shows donald trump won the election fair and square. the only reason why hillary clinton lost she was a terrible candidate. and what we know is one thing unequivocally, hillary clinton's campaign took $5 million, bought a false
4:36 am
dossier to try and actually impact the outcome of this election and she's the one who attempted to collude or coordinate with the russians. not the trump campaign. her campaign is the one that needs to be held accountable. todd: corey, we have a big interview coming up on the news channel in about two and a half hours. maria bartiromo sits down with the attorney general jeff sessions. he comments on whether he regrets recusing himself. we will get your opinion first. let's take a listen to part of that interview. >> i believe i did the right thing, the only thing i could do. i participated in this campaign. and as such under explicit regulation the department of justice, no one can participate in the investigation of a campaign in which they were an active participant. todd: jeff sessions thinks he did the right thing by recusing himself in the russia investigation. do you? >> i think jeff sessions, general sessions is a great man. and the work is he doing on ms-13 to disseminate them is important. with that being said, he owed the president an
4:37 am
explanation prior to accepting the position of attorney general that he is going to recuse himself. if he had that conversation with the president, and the president chose to still move his nomination forward, that's one thing. i think where the president has been disappointed and what he said publicly is, he didn't know that jeff sessions was going to recuse himself. look, i was there for the campaign for a lot of it. jeff did come out and travel with us. but an active participant in the campaign might be a stretch other than being a surrogate every now and then to say a few words about the president. rachel: reince priebus just recently in an interview that he did said he had talked jeff sessions into not quitting his job. at one point he was going to leave. he was going to quit. he talked him into it. do you think he should have talked him into staying or do you think we would be better off right now with a different a.g. because i know among republicans there has been disappointment with him. >> i think there has been some disappointment. at the end of the day, the attorney general reports to the president of the united states and as long as president trump is happy with the work that jeff
4:38 am
sessions is doing and continues to do at the justice department. rachel: what do you think, corey? what do you think? >> well, look, i think attorney general sessions should have disclosed to the fact that he was going to recuse himself. look, this mueller investigation has been all consuming, it's cost the taxpayers tens of millions of dollars. what we have seen from rod rosenstein just this week is that the trump campaign had nothing to do with it. i think we need to end this investigation to prove there was no collusion no cooperation, between trump's campaign and the russians at all. let's end the investigation. let's let jeff get back to doing his job of being the attorney general. griff: corey, the investigation is ongoing as we heard from rosenstein, so we shall see what happens in the coming days and weeks. rachel: we will see if they go after the dossier collusion there as well. thank you, corey for joining us this morning. >> i appreciate it. thank you. rachel: turning now to your headlines, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell thinks president trump should back mitt romney's senate run.

rachel: forget collusion and russians. people care about the earrings. todd: what's weird is her husband is going to use them to go fly fishing after we are done. griff: we shall see. bring up the news so we must address it big story we have been talking about, two of them actually the tragic shooting in park land, florida, wells the indictments. 13 months of president trump's presidency and 13 russians being indicted. rachel: three russian companies as well. griff: and certainly we have seen the media, the mainstream media the president being frustrated with the mainstream media. in particular, we want to show you this headline in the "new york times." it reads: trump's conspicuous silence leaves a struggle against russia without a leader. now, of course, we remember in that indictment from rod rosenstein it said that no american notionally participated in this.
5:03 am
todd: knowingly key words. griff: did not impact the outcome. president trump very frustrateside tweeting just here in the last hour. here's what he says. i never said russia did not meddle in the election. i said it may be russia or china or another country or group or it may be a 400-pound genius sitting in bed and playing with his computer. the russian hoax was that the trump campaign colluded with russia. it never did. rachel: never said russians didn't try to get involved in our election. he said i didn't collude with them. i can understand why is he frustrated. listen, he has been vindicated and the media and the democrats do not want to give him credit for that. todd: there's a huge difference between the word collude and meddle. and the president pointed that out this morning in that tweet. it is shocking that the mainstream media hasn't figured out the distips over the last 48 hours. rachel: the democrats doubling down on the russians and their impact on
5:04 am
the election, even though we are getting to where we will get to the facebook v.p. guy who said that didn't have that much impact. listen to what jerry nadler said on i believe it was joy reid's show -- no it was all out with chris haste on -- hayen msnbc. this is what he had to say about it. >> this is a very serious attack on the united states by a hostile power and our election process and entire governing process. that we know that the attack is continuing. the president and the republicans in the house for that matter, refuse, refuse to do anything about protecting us from a an attack. imagine if fdr had denied that the japanese attacked us at pearl harbor. that's the equivalent. griff: more than 2,000 americans died. but here's the thing. rachel: is he a progressive poster boy. even he was like really,
5:05 am
pearl harbor? griff: let this not be lost. jerry nadler isn't just a congressman from new york. he is the ranking democrat on the judiciary committee in the house. one of many of three, actually, on on capitol hill that's investigating the entire russian meddling thing. now this indictment pointing out that there was no collusion. that his administration and no american for that matter participated knowingly in this. and, yet, he is not only acknowledging the facts laid out in the 13 indictments, but he is playing partisan politics going to an outrageous comparison of hyperbole. rachel: is he signaling look, if you elect a democrat majority house, i'm going to initiate impeachment hearings on this president. that's what i think is he doing right there. todd: look at the language that he used. imagine if fdr denied that japanese attacked us at pearl harbor. the pearl harbor reference is insulting to all the brave men and women. let's take a step back. what did we just say three
5:06 am
days ago with the president's tweet, i acknowledge the meddling. like the mainstream media and out democrats don't make that connection. president trump understands there was meddling. and this guy says the president is not acknowledging. it he is acknowledging it. rachel: we have viewers emailing us. here is an email from roberts saying the attack on pearl harbor was an act of war. so is nadler going to push for a declaration of war defense russia for its meddling? griff: this one from ron, does he remember the horror of that day? i think not. i do. trust me, mr. nadler, you desecrate the memory of pearl harbor harr by your comparisons. todd: it's offensive to those folks but also raw. rachel: it's a strategy. what it is is that they see that there is no collusion. the investigation is not going in the way they wanted. and they have to double down on russia. by the way, democrats who
5:07 am
before hillary lost never seemed to really care that much about russia or diminishing them as a geopolitical enemy of ours. griff: and the president, you know, also tweeting about the fbi missing serious tips. rachel: absolutely. griff: it could have saved lives. let me put this tweet out there. very sad that the fbi missed all of the many signals sent out by the florida school shooter, this is not acceptable. they are spending too much time trying to prove russian collusion with the trump campaign. there's no collusion. get back to the basics and make us all proud. not necessarily connecting the two events with the indictments and what happened in florida. but pointing, rather, in a larger sense to an agency in crisis. rachel: also channeling where the american people are at. the american people are looking at these very credible tips missed, signs missed by the fbi. a call from somebody who actually knew this young man who said he is going to --
5:08 am
he is obsessed with guns. is he going to shoot up a school. they didn't pass this along and we have this situation. and american people looking back going what the heck has the fbi been doing? we know their leadership has been politicized. we know that leadership matters. we have got lead investigators calling their girlfriends about how to, you know, undo the american election in 2016. and have you got to go why aren't they focusing on the very basics? this is what the president says get back to the basics, fbi. todd: great point on what the american people want. think about the jobs the americans have. very focused jobs. they go, they do their job as part of a bigger organization on the whole. what do they do? they stay in their lane as part of a greater whole. the fbi, at least the senior leadership is not staying in its lane. what we need the fbi to do right now is protect the men and women of the united states. what we need the cia to do. we need them to protect the men and women of the united states. what we don't need them doing is wasting time going after a president. they can go after russia.
5:09 am
that makes sense because we do see, the president admitted russia is meddling. we don't need them going after the president unnecessarily. and potentially, we have to put that caveat, exposing problems in other areas. ie, florida. rachel: you bring up the american people. the american people did their job in this case. we had lots of people sending in their tips. taking photos of their, you know, the comment that was left on the blogger. griff griff sure, see something, say something. rachel: those things weren't followed up. gosh, if you are a parent in that town across america, we're frustrated. griff: it will be interesting to see if the president's frustration leads to any announcements here in the coming days from the fbi. i had a former fbi agent that i worked with in years past saying hey, griff, you should suggest that the fbi set up a specific unit that only focuses on school shooting threat. they have one for human trafficking and this sort of thing like create a
5:10 am
department. i don't know. maybe that's a suggestion that. rachel: what we need to do as a country, i think is, look at this wholisticly. the left go it's just about guns. it's about the fbi missing stuff. it's about parenting as the teacher who sent that facebook post sent in, and it's also about mental health and what do we do about that. griff: that's a good point. more details are developing as the community is heart broken over this devastating loss of those 17 innocent lives tragically cut short in the school shooting. rachel: new reports now suggesting that warning signs were missed about nikolas cruz's troubling past. todd: rick lesson that you live for us in parkland, florida with the very latest. >> good morning. the streets have reopened around majory stoneman douglas high school. no classes through at least wednesday. the goal is to get teachers in here before the end of the week. that building where the shooting took place is likely to be torn down and replaced because they don't
5:11 am
want students walking the halls or sitting in classrooms where their fellow classmates were shot and killed. focus down here now of course is on the mourning. there are vigils being held day and night here in parkland to honor the lives lost and demand, in many cases, tighter gun control. the loved ones, of course, are also continuing to bury the victims. two funerals were held on friday. there was another saturday. and two more will be held today. including services for geography teacher scott beigel instead of running for his life stopped to lock kids in a classroom. he was shot and killed as the gunman walked by. beigel one of several: fbi ignoring warnings that might have prevented the massacre. the police were called to his home 20 times for disturbances. he was expelled from this school and treated for mental illness still able to
5:12 am
purchase weapons he used to gun down two dozen teens and adults. we are hearing cruz is wanting to plead guilty to the murders in exchange for life in prison. the state's attorney says it's too soon to take the death penalty off the table as this community continues to grieve for so many young people lost way too soon, guys. rachel: thank you for that. griff: rick, thank you. i know you have covered so many of these shootings as i have occasionally with you. this one is really hitting that community hard. thank you for that report. >> sure. todd: coming up. a campus protest against white nationalists turned into a rally against cops? [chanting hey cops, hey fascisms, get the [bleep] off our campus] todd: live report ahead. griff: we have been telling you about the indictment of russian nationals.
5:13 am
could this mean dossier. john ratcliffe joins us next.
5:14 am
5:15 am
5:16 am
todd: we have been telling you about mueller's dintle against 13 russian nationals for meddling in our election. the question now what does this mean for the clinton campaign and can they be charged for their alleged ties to that anti-trump dossier. griff: john ratcliffe is a member of the house judiciary committee. he joins us now to weigh in. congressman, good morning. >> good morning. griff: what say you can the clinton campaign be charged for that dossier? >> well, you know, there is
5:17 am
nothing inherently illegal about doing opposition research or even using foreign sources to do that research. i think if you want to hold the clinton campaign accountable, the greater abuses relate to how that dossier was used before the fisa court and the fact that the fisa court was not told who paid for it and that it was used as a basis to gain a warrant against -- to spy against a trump campaign associate. todd: congressman, let's go into the indictments themselves. if you watch the mainstream media over the course of the last 48 hours. you are literally getting the exact opposite of illegal education. what you are learning is absolutely incorrect. it doesn't make any sense and legally, factually inaccurate. what did these indictments show? what did they not show? and is the president completely absolved, mainly absolved? where does he fall on the scale? >> well, this particular indictment is mostly good news for the president. remember the charge to bob
5:18 am
mueller was to investigate whether or not the russians interfered with the election, and whether or not there were any links to the trump campaign. the 37-page indictment lays out with some bega granularity how the russians interfered in the election and in the indictment and rod rosenstein's press conference they go out in great details to say no americans, including anyone associated with the trump campaign was witnessingly wit wy involved with respect to conspiracy. i do think it's good news for the president. the negative here is that bob mueller has clearly indicated in the indictment that the investigation will continue. when a prosecutor uses the term that there are others known and unknown to the grand jury that are part of the conspiracy, that's a signal that there are other, either superseding indictments to come or additional indictments about additional conspiracies.
5:19 am
todd: congressman, as a seasoned u.s. attorney, you understand the ramifications of saying no american knowingly. that is the mens rea. that is the key part of prosecuting somebody. am i right? >> very clearly. and so, again, i think that this indictment does not deliver what a lot of the critics on the left were hoping for. that somehow bob mueller was going to issue an indictment that would lead to the impeachment of donald trump. it's clearly not in here. there is no indication that any american was involved in this larger conspiracy out of the kremlin or an association, the internet research agency associated with the kremlin. griff: congressman, we are almost out of time. quickly, your colleagues in the senate have referred christopher steele to the doj. will we see something of that nature from the house? >> i don't think you will see something out of the house. one criminal referral is
5:20 am
probably enough. i do think that there are grounds. if someone wanted to charge christopher steele for instance, with lying to an fbi agent, that would be pretty a case that could probably be proved pretty easily. so, i think that the house will continue our investigations that are ongoing. but, again, the problem with christopher steele is the same as these indicted russians. i don't think that the brits, even though they are our allies are going to want to extradite to us a former counter intelligence official of theirs. griff: all right congressman ratcliff, thank you very much and enjoy the rest of your sunday. >> you bet, thanks. todd: from a level headed lawyer who knows what he is talking about. a florida's teacher post about gun violence going viral after the school shooting. she says parents need to step up when it comes to their kids' behavior. we have an amazing parenting panel here to react next. you don't wants to miss that. we all want to know about the new thing.

5:26 am
friend. let's ask liz stern founder of diva mom and dr. dominic sportelli a psychiatrist focusing on kids, right? and jeanne dino a political science professor. thank you, all of you, this has been a very difficult week and people are asking what do we do about it? let's talk about mental health issues first with you. why was this child not -- nicholas, why was he not in a place where he could get the mental help he needed. >> honestly what we see in this country right now there is no question about there is a mental health crisis meaning there are no -- well, minimal child adolescent psychologists and behavioral specialists out there. there is this incredible shortage. unfortunately he fell through the cracks. when i look at a situation like him. he ticked every red flag
5:27 am
down the line to say this kid needs intervention immediately. so, honestly, from my perspective, as a mental health professional, i don't know how he fell through the cracks there were just too many red flags. rachel: he was an orphan, other issues going on there this teacher talking about my parents were public school teachers. they said there is a lot of lack of discipline, parents wanting to be their kids' friends. >> i think we have all seen that and experienced that. and just to follow up on what dr. dominic said, even if you do identify somebody with a mental health challenge, from a public policy perspective, there are very few avenues you have for treatment. beds are scarce, cost is enormous. that hasn't been challenged or handled. to your point about parenting, there is very few resources for parents to learn how to be good parents. what you need to do -- rachel: to be fair, jeanne, people were just parenting and not trying to be their friends, flight where did we go wrong on this?
5:28 am
>> i think things have changed. unfortunately, we need as parents now to take a step back and really say we need to be the parents and we're the ones in control. meaning that if a kid says stepping all over you and wants to do something, you say no if you feel that way. my mom is interesting. she will always say to me you, your generation needs to parent. we were the parents. when we said no. you understood what we were saying. your generation she watches and she says they walk all over you, these kids. and we as parents need to take a step back and we need to be the ones in charge. rachel: how many times have we heard that these kids had these weapons in their rooms. since when is your room your parents don't own your room? i mean, they don't go in. that teacher brought that up. >> listen, parenting unequivocally data shows a parent's parenting style will dictate the development of your child and the permanent of your child. we see this. we know this. authoritative parenting will
5:29 am
lend towards a certain type of child's personality. rachel: more rebellious. >> more rebellious, more impulse control, things like that. cops that are helicopter parents nowadays we have helicopter parents. micromanaging parents. we call them cruise director parents. they don't allow their kids to experience adversity and understand how to deal with it on their own. if you don't -- i say this all the time and it sounds counter productive if you don't allow your child to fail, allow them to fail, allow them to learn positive coping mechanisms to overcome it. >> that's the real world. >> let's be honest though, parents have a huge role in this. we as a community and i say this as a political scientist, we have an absolute role as well. you cannot say especially things may have been better 20 or 30 years ago when we group. the reality now we have to deal with as a community. it does take a community to race particularly a mentally troubled child. >> we don't have the resources. >> the culture has changed.
5:30 am

5:48 am
why they are trying to bring up that you will russia stuff and change the subject. >> rachel, what is president obama's legacy? that he spied on american citizens illegally as we now know with regards to carter page? is it that he gave $150 billion to a regime in tehran that wants to destroy us and our best friends like israel? or is it the fact that he created obamacare, which was a disaster for most americans in terms of their deductibles, their premiums skyrocketing. there is no legacy for this administration. and now we're finds out just what they did to us behind the scenes with unmasking and everything else. so don't worry, the true story about what we suffered for the last 8 years it's finally going to come out. todd: dr. gorka, how many more facts does the mainstream media need before their narrative changes or is their narrative never going to change, their anti-trump view? >> i just saw "the

6:04 am
it doesn't align with the main media narrative of trump in the election. another from goldman saying most of the coverage of russian meddling involved their attempt to affect the outcome of the 2016 u.s. election. i have seen all of the russian a ds and i can say very definitively that swinging the election was not the main goal. it was otherwise, just simply throw our political system into chaos. rachel: by the way rob goldman now in the crosshairs of the resistance for saying the truth that these ads came out most of them after the election, had no impact and if you actually saw the ads, we've put a lot of them up yesterday on fox & friends they were laugh able. really silly kind of stuff. todd: if there's one takeaway i have over the course of the last 48 hours, it's this mainstream media narrative that the president does not acknowledge meddling. i want to play this sound bite for you right now this is jerry nadler, who has a horrific
6:05 am
historical comparison and then we'll break it down here is jerry nadler, democrat congressman from new york. >> this is a very serious attack against the united states by hostile foreign power in attack against our election process, our entire governing process that we know that the attack is continuing. the president and the republican and the house for that matter refuse to do anything about protecting us from the attack. imagine if f f f fdr denied this in pearl harbor and didn't react rachel: this is so insane. he's saying i didn't cold you'd with them. griff: he literally said in the tweet we read two minutes ago he acknowledges the russian meddling in our democracy so this is offensive on two levels, let's take a step back thousands of people died on december 7, 1941 it is a horrific day in our history and changed the course
6:06 am
of the world forever and to compare these two things -- todd: let's give it context here this isn't just a member of congress. this is the ranking member of the ranking democrat of the judiciary committee looking into the russian collusion story and the people that watch it believe it and so what the president is saying is that democrats are doing the job of the russians to cause chaos in our political system to further divide the partisan division that we have in this country and comments like that from congressman nadle r should be in my ovservation rightly criticized because he's speaking, there's aside from the absurd comparison which is reaching too far, considering the americans but this is a player in the process. this is a ranking democrat of the judiciary committee trying to in the president's opinion do the russians job. rachel: oh, he's signaling. if the democrats win the house in the next midterm election,
6:07 am
this guy, congressman nadler, will be the head of the judiciary and he's signaling that he's going to initiate impeachment hearings i'm absolutely certain of that and it's really interesting too because you talk about the russians. what has trump done versus what the trump adminitration has done to frustrate the russians on the real geo-political aims or goals president trump is building up the military. president trump opening up anwar we are now major competitors in the oil market the russians, something that wasn't happening before he did that before he expanded fracking as well. we just killed 200 russian mercenaries in syria. we're absolutely pushing back on russian interest in syria so you can talk all you want about a few facebook ads that came out after the election but when you talk about russia as a geo-political there's only one administration, not the obama administration, the trump adminitration that's been doing the job against the russians.
6:08 am
todd: great point and to that point i kind of think the democrats and the mainstream media want the president to become a hacker. the president' job literally is diplomacy. he's not sitting there at a computer trying to do counterterrorism on his computer that's the job of the cia and quite frankly we don't know what they're doing behind closed door s nor should we. that is called covert operation. it's the president's job to do diplomacy. lay off the guy, let him do his job. griff: tomorrow is president's day and this conversation of criticizing him is spreading also to another host, joy reed, who is writing, this is the headline a president's day without a real president. reed writes in her article that monday is president's day it will be the second consecutive such holiday without an american president. sure donald trump sits in the oval office when he's not golf ing. he lives in the white house at least in theory with his family but he is not the president of the united states. trump is as hollow a vessel as
6:09 am
there has ever been in the white house. his rule lacks even a shred of moral authority. giant word salad of that attack. todd: word salad that's good. rachel: and it's the strategy of the luck right? as soon as he was elected by the way they wanted to impeach him before he even took office and then they said listen we're not going to normalize this president and we're going to do all this russia collusion stuff to try this and that's what this is about and you see that democrats are frustrated they were waiting for this mueller indictment to come down about indictment says that the president has been vindicated that there was no collusion between his campaign and the russians, and now, what are the democrats like joy reed going to do? they have nothing to run on so they go well he's not really a president because he don't have russia any more. todd: and this plays right into the hands of the russians because the democrats like joy r eid can't see past their trump

derangement syndrome they can't see the truth or the fact so what is this doing, this is the undermining of democracy that the russians were trying to accomplish. rachel: and the american people aren't stupid they were never buying the russian collusion story the polls show that and also show that the american people are reacting very positively to the tax reform the deregulation that is really jump started this economy and that's what people care about. griff: we got one more hour to talk about it but first, rachel is giving you headlines. rachel: we'll turn to headlines and we begin with a fox news alert. 66 people killed including one child after an iranian commercial plane crashed into a mountain overnight. family members now awaiting more information from the airlines. flight 3704 was flying from tehran to yasuj. bad weather was reported in the area at the time of the crash. and, a case like this is made for the death penalty. that a bold statement coming from the prosecutor in charge of trying to confess teen killer who gunned down 17 people in a

students, faculty and staff and to engage in this helps us to create a layer of safety in terms of response, rapid response to hopefully reduce loss of life. griff: you know, dr. ingal, we spoke yesterday with two members of the football team talking about that hero coach, and coach feiss is also a security guard in his own right and i asked those students whether or not fe iss would have made a difference had he had a gun or been armed and the answer they said was 100%, so i ask you as you try and push for this, to be a florida standard operating procedure, do you anticipate you'll have the support to make it happen? >> i think so. when again you get to the heart of you're trying to save lives, we want to do everything we can to create that layer and when you think about faculty and staff being armed you have to realize they're highly trained. i mean they go through 100 hours
6:17 am
of firearm safety and actual intentional training on how to confront a killer, and then you add on top of that 32 hours of deadly force training. i mean, they are ready to engage a killer should they walk on our campus and then they're sworn in by our sheriff to actually be a volunteer special deputy, so again, we create that layer of protection, that hopefully, will engage that killer as soon as possible. todd: dr. ingal, how do you respond to critics who say adding guns to a campus really does create a slippery slope. how do you respond to that? >> well, first of all we have to go back again to the argument that it's about saving lives and then it's about the training. we're not talking about a free for all, everyone having access to guns. we're talking about enforcement officers who know exactly how to engage that active shooter and that's why we created this particular layer. we entered a contractual relationship with the sheriff

right after the sandy hook incident with intention that we would actually have sheriff officers on campus setting up a command post every single day to provide that protection for our students. rachel: so what kind of feedback are you getting from people with your idea? >> well its been overwhelmingly supportive, especially from parents. i'll tell you when parents walk on our campus and they bring their sons and daughters to check out our university, you actually, when we vq and a sessions, you can actually see the fear in their eyes, and these parents the number one question they're asking, what are you doing to make sure our children are going to be safe. our young people are going to be safe and when we are able to share with them about these layers of security and especially this program, you can start to see the fear kind of dissipate out of those eyes. they know we're doing everything we can to have an impact in reducing injury and loss of life.

griff: dr. ingle, thank you very much. one quick last question is has your staff by and large indicated they want to carry gun s? >> they do. they have stepped up to the plate because they know how serious this issue is and again it's all about providing safety and security. todd: contract lingle, thank you very much, sir. >> thank you. griff: a campus protest against white nationalists turns into a rally against cops. >> [crowd chanting and cheering ] griff: kevin jackson has been talking to law enforcement across the country to get their side of the story coming up next whoooo.

6:24 am
victim. when i was a kid, there were tons of people who were in really bad circumstances. my grandfather would not let us be in that. you always have to play the hand you're dealt. if you're dealt a bad hand you tell have toeplate. griff: here to react kevin jackson. good to see you. why is victimhood to dangerous for our society. >> clarence thomas nails it. i was with justice thomas about three years ago and he's outlin ed it. we can't all be chip & dale dancers and victoria's secret models and you know the world is going to deal you a hand like he said and you've got to play that hand and what's interesting about this is that, you know, the left is constantly looking for a reason for people to feel bad when we should be encouraging our kids, and encouraging individuals anyway.
6:25 am
i don't even understand this mentality, no matter whether you're at a job or your parents are telling you something people should be, should feel as if they can achieve, and what we've got is this culture that says no , no matter who you are, you can be looked at as a victim. colin kaepernick, a multi- millionaire black football player, half black, is a victim, and a victim of what? you know, so he's exactly right. america is sick of it. we're to the point of exhaustion because it doesn't matter whether you're a woman. there's augend r bias. if you're black there's a color bias. if you're latino, there's a country bias that we don't want you here from mexico, something there's always going to be a bias and people are tired of it. rachel: i think people are exhausted with the victimhood narrative and it goes hand in hand with the racist one as well and it's exhausting. listen, another topic that's coming up anti-white supremacy protesters attacking the police who were there to protect free
6:26 am
speech and calling them names. >> yeah, so we've been going around the country we've got a movie coming out on september 7 called bleeding blue. you can see it at bleedingblue movie.com and you know what's really sad about what's going on around campuses is these are the people that are breaking up the various issues that occur so they're keeping groups separate. these are police officers who are human beings that are doing their jobs and you've got kids that are being taught that the good guys are the bad guys, and who do they protect? they protect people that come into this country to do us harm whether it's bringing drugs, whether it's human trafficking, and all these different things. they will stand up for those types of people and won't even protect the men and women in blue who go out every day and run into harms way to protect these clowns. it's amazing to me that we let them get away with it. todd: kevin when i saw this video a pair of questions was in
6:27 am
my mind. it really comes down to this. are these people this stupid or is this really part of an agenda that no matter what the cops do they're going to be anti-cop, because again these cops were there to protect them. >> exactly. it's actually both. believe it or not i get asked this question a lot. are liberals, are they really this stupid and do they really believe what they're being told about police or whatever and the short answer is yes, they are, that stupid. they do believe it and it's being taught that the police are the bad guys but, you know, the thugs that are going around committing crimes they're the good guys and what's interesting about this particular protest is they are essentially treating the police as if they are white supremities or white nationalist or whatever because when you look at what this is all centered around it's centered around the lie of the black lives matter movement and the idea that cops are beating up
6:28 am
black people in droves. that has been dispelled with every fiber of every statistical , you know, thing, dispells that myth yet we are still talking about it and people want to make that an issue. rachel: kevin they're calling cops fascists and pigs and dehumanizing them and i think there's a connection between what we see the deaths of police officers, you talk to cops all over the country what are they saying about this? >> i would tell you that they're de moralized to a degree but they really are not and quite honestly i've said the police officers around the country i wish that everybody that objects to who you guys are you could just disappear and let them fight it out. if the police didn't show up to this campus who knows what would happen. griff great point. >> these would be the people begging for police to come. you don't have to watch a whole lot of police shows to understand these are the guys that show up in the neighborhood consoling anybody but

6:33 am
>> i believe i did the right thing, the only thing i could do i participated in this campaign, and it's such under the explicit regulations of the department of justice and no one can participate in the investigation of a campaign in which they were an active participant. griff: once again the host of sunday morning futures maria bartiromo has brought us a huge interview with nunes last week this week it is attorney general jeff sessions there talking about recusing himself. maria: and there's so much debate about this. should he have recused himself
6:34 am
now that we look back and we see the wrongdoing that was happening around the hillary clinton e-mail investigation and of course the fisa court abuses. look, he did recuse himself as you just heard he's defending that decision but he also said all of this wrongdoing we will get to the bottom of it. he mentioned the inspector general and how he is going to be relentless and tough and when there are felonies which we talked about because there already have been felonies by the way the leaking of classified information is a felony, and he said he's going to make sure to get to the bottom of it even though he has recuse himself. rachel: we asked corey lewandowski earlier in the show what he thought about your interview on this topic with sessions, so let's take a look at that. >> jeff did come out and travel with us but an active participant in the campaign might be a stretch other than him being a surrogate every now and then to say a few words about the president. i think attorney general jeff sessions should have disclosed he was going to recuse himself because look this mueller
6:35 am
investigation has been all- consuming and cost the taxpayers tens of millions of dollars and what we seen from rod rosenstein just this week was the trump campaign had nothing to do with it so let's let jeff get back to doing this job of being the attorney general. todd: maria do you also speak about the fbi the larger problems we were talking off the air about president trump's tweet that you've got an agency in disarray. maria: we did and he was very up front admitting there were obvious failures, the fbi and now we know that a month before the actual shooting took place that they did get this tip, so, you know, he seemed to understand the issues that people are upset about around the fbi and has committed to ensure that he will get to the bottom of it or rod rosenstein will get to the bottom of it and michael had so he said look we're going to be relentless and make sure justice was served i was very impressed with him and you know i've been among the more critical people saying
6:36 am
where is he? he's mia. griff: maria i love asking about the markets but there are things more important than money and thank you for having me on your show this week from florida to talk about the events. maria: my heart was going out to you i saw it on your face when you were live all day in that place where there was so much upset and obvious tragedy so thank you for joining us. todd: just doing my job. maria: that must have been hard reporting. todd: one woman won teacher of the year and she has a facebook post going viral. i'll read it. this is kelly guthrie. she writes until we as a country are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parent trent all support when the schools are trying to control horrible behavior at school and then she writes oh, no not my kid, what did you do to cause my kid to react that way, again a tongue and cheek line right there. lack of moral values and yes i'll say it violent video games that takeaway all sensitivity to
6:37 am
any compassion for others lives as well as reality tv that makes it common place for people to constantly screen up in each other's faces and not value any other person but themselves. we will have a gun problem in school. our kids don't understand the permanence of death any more. parents it's time to step up and be the parent that actually gives a crap. be the annoying mom that knows what your kid is doing, stop being their friend. a lot to unpack. i'll give it up to you. maria: no i think this is becoming an increasing worry for the american people. people want to see what is being done in terms of mentally ill and that's why we're trying to understand why it has been so easy for someone mentally ill to obtain a gun. rachel: maria you talk to so many lawmakers and we saw in the case of the young disturbed man who shot up newtown a lot of parents with disturbed kids say i tried to commit my kid and i can't and there's not enough funds. something we've got to get to the bottom of like where do we
6:38 am
put kids like this when they're troubled? maria: you're right and i think the president is also working on this. i don't know the answers to all of this but i do know that, you know, people are asking questions as far as mentally challenged getting their hands-on weapons and i mean this is something we really do need to be looking at more serious and i don't know the answer in terms of mentally challenged but obviously this has now become front and center and it looks like we are looking at some solutions or efforts. i don't know where this goes. griff: i'll tell you what's front and center is your show because not only do you have attorney general sessions you have house speaker paul ryan. maria: there's so much debate about whether or not the conservatives have lost all fiscal responsibility and restraint with this last spending plan so paul ryan actually really expressed me. he defended the plan and the need to help the military and they had to agree to a lot of things but i will say this. there's still a question about when we're going to get our arms around the entitlement. we understand and most people
6:39 am
know that's where the growth in spending goes we need some kind of a reform package i wouldn't expect in an election year in 2018 but it is coming. rachel: something he said he wants to attack. griff: thank you very much. rachel: turning now to your headlines, by the nra, the mainstream media running wild with this claim about the florida school shooter seen here on the cover of the new york daily news and progressive outlet progress taking it one step further tweeting the nra donated $10,000 to help train the parkland shooting suspect to use a rifle. what the media didn't tell you is that the donation went to the junior rotc program, which nikolas cruz was a member of. they also failed to mention the quick thinking junior rotc cadet s who helped save dozens of students during that where we interviewed that kid he's a hero former president bill clinton ready to weigh in on an upcoming federal court decision to unseal records related to his monica le

rachel: its been just days since tragedy struck their school but yesterday, inspired by their hero coach aaron feiss, seven members of the football team honored their coach the only way they knew how by playing their hearts out on the field. griff: our own rob schmidt spoke to the team about this amazing event and the amazing legacy of their coach. rob? >> that's right guys good morning. he was their friend and assistant football coach aaron f eis, he died a hero throwing himself in front of the bullets trying to save kids inside this high school during that rampage on wednesday and yesterday, these kids got a chance to get back on the field. they had a decision to make the night before and they said we're going to do it because that's what coach feis would have wanted. >> coach feis would have been here today. >> he was everywhere we were. if we were somewhere he was there. >> not having him here, it looks like from what i saw you guys still played your hearts out on this field. >> i think that these guys knew
6:45 am
that's what he would want, you know? he would want them to come out and like he would say ball out and give everything you have. not only just for ourselves but to support douglas high school and our whole community, we're not going to quit. we're not going to lay down. we're going to stay strong and we're going to keep doing what we do. >> how proud of of these kids are you? >> oh, my lord i can't tell you. it was had for them today to come out here. >> every one in this program is one, is a family and they came out here and made not only themselves proud but our school proud. >> coach feis, tell me something you loved about him? >> he was a great guy, he cared about everyone. i don't know, i'm honestly speechless about everything and in shock. >> we keep expecting him when we go back but he's not going to be there. this is my outlet right here.
6:46 am
>> we have strong young men around us and we have to keep pushing and helping each each other out. eye i knew coach fei s, so i had to come here and support and i had to make it here for him so i came out here balls out. it's for him. how was it today? >> it was good doing what we love and he loved it too, so he would have wanted us to come out here. >> i feel like he's not really gone. he's more here with us in our heart. >> i kind of came out here was rethinking it and i was like i walked out on the field and i was like oh, this kind of hurts because i don't see my big man standing, because he was actually suppose supposed to come to this. if he could have told you to do this do you think he would have said get your butt on that field and go play. >> no question and if we even talked about us not going he would have been very very very upset. everybody loved him. he was probably one of the
6:47 am
greatest men i've ever met and i'll keep saying that until the day i die that he's one of the greatest men i've ever met. i want to send prayers to the family of every single victim. that's coach hicxson, our athletic director. this is coach feis. >> that's was queen oliver. peter, alyssa, alaina, jamie, we have everybody all 17. >> they really are some great kids at the school and on this team and it was nice to see them to be able to get out there and play football and just forget about all of this for just a couple hours, they've been really through hell over the last few days and it's nice to get away from that. the quarterback's dad told me he said his son is going to go to more funerals in the next week than most people will go to in a lifetime so for him to get away from it all in a few hours and get back to normal things was really important and it's an important event and hopefully some will get scholarships so it
6:48 am
was important for them to be there and coach feis would have wanted them there. rachel: he seems like the kind of coach you just dream your kid gets to play under. what a also to that community. >> it certainly is, but a great guy and you can just see how warm everybody is in this community. they all care about each other so much. this is just a really great neighborhood and a great place to raise kids and have a family. that's what makes this so tough even harder. it really is a special place. griff: rob great work to you and to the producer down there. rachel: thank you, rob. todd: coming up donald trump jr. meets the mets for a fishing trip, what? griff: so why is one player apologizing this morning, that's coming up next. todd: plus it's race day at daytona. start your engines, rick is gearing up for the great american race, with nascar legend richard petty and darryl wallace jr. , next. >> ♪ ♪ mercedes-benz glc
